HiYa Tom-
Yes, the Ford-Ferguson 2N Warhorse spark plug wires were different lengths, much shorter, due to the Magneto. It also used a shorter conduit. A few guys have done what you are doing, taking a 2N and making a warhorse unit even if they were or weren't a warhorse originally. The task is trying to locate all of the OEM parts that went on the warhorse model. Steel wheels are common to find but the magneto, conduit, idler, starter motor plug, ammeter plug, choke lever to front, and correct TSX -38 carb with the double throw choke lever are hard to find. Here is the LINK to our MANUALS forum for the 1943 MPC of all the warhorse parts. It lists the spark plug wires and conduit. Member Chris Eby restored his Warhorse - see link to archived post and pictures - so you can ask him for help on what he did with his. Also, the July 1947 MPC lists the spark plug wires lengths for the magneto unit as well as the standard 8N plug wires if you want to cut and make your own. The warhorse conduit used a shorter tube due to routing of the magneto. When standard 2N production resumed in early 1943, the 9N conduit was again used up thru all 2N production at the end of 1946. There were three conduits used on the N's: 9N-12112, 2N-12112 (for magneto only); and the 8N-12112.
